Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
It is not possible at the moment to change the secret key passphrase from the UI.

Q2 - Who is impacted?
Everyone but especially people that use a weak passphrase.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
This will help improve security.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
there is a workaround, the bad news is that it’s not very user friendly. What you need to do:

  • Export your private key
  • Import your private key in another Gpg compatible keyring and change the passphrase there
  • Export your updated private key
  • Follow the recover procedure in passbolt load up your private key with the new passphrase.

Q5. Community support
People can vote for this idea to show traction:

  • :ok_woman: Must have: this is critical for me to have this
  • :raising_hand_woman: Should have: this is important for me to have this
  • :tipping_hand_woman: Could have: this could be nice to have
  • :no_good_woman: Won’t have: we should not schedule this (explain why)

Is there any progress on this? Some data privacy policies may force a company to have their users to change their password periodically, so this is rather an important feature.
